HGTV STARS’ BRUSHES WITH THE LAW RE­VEALED!

Life & Style Weekly - - Inside Hollywood -

HGTV view­ers love the Re­stored by the Fords broth­er­sis­ter duo of Steve and Leanne Ford, but the lo­cal po­lice in Pitts­burgh aren’t al­ways such big fans. For one, con­trac­tor Steve has a whop­ping 11 traf­fic vi­o­la­tions, in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple counts of speed­ing and ig­nor­ing “traf­fic-con­trol de­vices,” while his de­signer sis has three. And Life & Style has learned that Steve was once ar­rested — for loving his Steel­ers a lit­tle too much. On Feb. 1, 2009, af­ter the team tri­umphed in Su­per Bowl XLIII, Steve was one of hun­dreds of peo­ple cel­e­brat­ing in the streets. Ac­cord­ing to the crim­i­nal com­plaint, at 11:30 p.m., “of­fi­cers be­gan or­der­ing pedes­tri­ans to clear the streets us­ing a bull­horn.… [Steve] was placed un­der ar­rest af­ter [he] re­fused nu­mer­ous com­mands to dis­perse.” In the end, Steve com­pleted com­mu­nity ser­vice and his rep­u­ta­tion was, well, re­stored.

Leanne and Steve re­store homes around Pitts­burgh — and oc­ca­sion­ally run afoul of the law.
